FOREWORD. 

The Service Hymnal was prepared to meet the needs 
of The Service Manual, and is designed for use in the 
synagogue, the religious school and the home. 

It contains the music of the responses and hymns of the 
Sabbath and Holy-Day Services, and a selection of hymns 
for special devotions and national festivals. 

Traditional melodies have been preserved wherever pos- 
sible, and the musical settings of the responses have been 
taken mainly from Jewish sources. The Psalms, the fount- 
ain-head of religious fervor and inspiration, have been 
especially drawn upon for texts of the hymns, and their 
metrical form is, to a large extent, the paraphrase of classical 
writers. A conscientious effort has been made to select 
tunes and texts that are easily learned, and that, at the 
same time, deepen devotional spirit and lend greater 
beauty to the service. 

The Introductory Service is designed for special 
devotions, and for the religious exercises of the Sabbath 
School.

INVOCATION. 

Minister : 

O Lord, with faith in Thy grace we enter Thy house; 
with awe we bow down before Thee in Thy sanctuary. 
We love Thy habitation, O Lord ; we cherish the sacred 
abode of Thy glory. Here we humble ourselves before 
Thee. Here we breathe a holier atmosphere, and feel the 
blessed influences of Thy divine spirit. Here we loosen 
the fetters that hold us fast to the material world, and lift 
ourselves on the wings of lofty aspiration and pious medi- 
tation into Thy celestial realms. Here we unlock our 
souls and open our hearts to Thee. Here we offer before 
Thee our fervent prayers : in mercy accept and answer 
them, our God and Creator. Amen.

Enter into His gates with 
thanksgiving, and into His

ADORATION. 

nyr nm r\rn 

{To be read in alternate responses by Minister and Congregation.) 

Unto Thee, O Lord, we render praise, honor and thanks. 
Mighty things hast Thou done for us, and in us hast Thou 
magnified Thy greatness and Thy goodness. 

Praised be Thou for the souls and minds with which 
Thou hast ennobled us, and which enable us to comprehend 
the excellence of Thy works, and to understand the sacred 
mission Thou wouldst have us fill on earth. 

Praised be Thou for the many dangers averted, for the 
frequent deliverances without which we should long since 
have perished, for the pleasures of our homes and associa- 
tions, for all the means through which Thou hast sweet- 
ened our life and hast prospered our ways. 

Praised be Thou, also, for the trials which Thou hast 
allotted to us, and which have rendered us both wiser and 
humbler, for the consolation which Thou hast imparted to 
us under them, and for the happy issue of them which 
Thou hast opened to us. 

For all these, and other blessings which Thou hast 
vouchsafed unto us, and for those which, in Thy superior 
wisdom, Thou hast been pleased to deny us, we render 
praise and glory unto Thee, now and forever. Amen. 

Choir : 

Praise ye the Lord, the j ♦ -p y^fi »-j-j£ sp-Q 
Praise-deserving. 

Congregation : 

Praised be the Lord, the 
Praise- deserving, forever and 
aye. 






THANKSGIVING. 7 

THANKSGIVING. 

Minister : 

Creator of All, unto Thee all should offer thanks ; unto 
Thee all should render praise. For the universe and all 
contained therein are Thy glorious works, and their awe- 
inspiring excellence declares Thy greatness and Thy good- 
ness. Thou, O Lord, givest unto nature her law. Thou 
openest the gates of heaven, and showerest Thy blessings 
upon the earth. Thou leadest forth the sun in all his glory, 
and the moon and stars in all their beauty, to give warmth 
and light to man and beast. 

Were our mouths filled with sacred song as the sea 
with water, our tongues with melody as are its roaring 
billows, our lips with praise like the boundless firmament ; 
were our eyes as brilliant as the sun and moon, our hands 
extended like the eagle's wings, our feet swift as the hind's 
— even then would we be unable worthily to praise Thee. 

Fountain of all our joys, Thou art never-ceasing in Thy 
beneficence. There is no boundary to Thy goodness. Thou 
art the Infinite, nature's Lord, God in the earth below, 
God in the worlds circling above. 
Choir : 

The heavens declare the 
glory of God, and the fir- 
mament showeth his handi- 
work.

SUPPLICATION. 

^tf?P psn w • d^ijwt 1 ?^ pari 

Minister : 

Lord of all Worlds, not our righteousness, but Thy 
bounteous mercy, draws us unto Thee with our fervent 
supplications. Thou seest the inmost thought and purpose 
of every soul. Thou art acquainted with all our ways, and 
there is not a word on our tongues, but lo ! O Lord, Thou 
knowest it. And what can we say to Thee, O Father ? 
What are we, and what is our life ? Are not even our 
heroes as naught in Thy sight, our men of fame as if they 
had never been, our learned men as though void of under- 
standing? Profitless would be our handiwork, vain, the 
days of our lives, hadst Thou not planted within us the 
blessed light of reason, without which we would in nowise 
differ from the brute. 

Incline us, O Lord, to walk in the way of Thy law, and 
to cling steadfastly unto Thy commandments. Imbue us 
with noble aspirations. May evil inclinations have no 
control over us. May our senses be good servants unto us, 
and not our evil masters. May we find this day, and every 
day, grace and mercy in Thy sight, and in the sight of all 
who come in contact with us. Amen.

God of my salvation.

CONSECRATION. 



CONSECRATION. 

Minister : 

Thou, O God, hast led Thy servants with unchanging 
love. From the very beginning of our existence hast 
Thou destined us fur a noble mission. For it Thou didst 
prepare our fathers in the school of trial and tribulation, 
and through it they were enabled to render valuable ser- 
vice in the spread of a knowledge of Thee and of Thy 
Law. Had they not suffered, they never would have 
achieved. Those whom Thou choosest for Thy service, 
Thou mouldest in the furnace of affliction and hardenest 
on the anvil of adversity, to keep them vigilant at their 
post and mindful of their duty. Thou heedest not their 
sighs or tears, for Thou knowest that, in the fulness of 
time, they will intone their thanks for every sigh, and 
the world will bless them for having suffered and achieved. 

Solemnly we consecrate ourselves anew to-day to the 
work our fathers began. Ours, too, shall be the constant 
aim aud effort to bring ever nearer that blessed age, when 
all mankind's goal shall be our creed: 

ONE GOD OVER ALL; 

ONE BRO THERHOOD OF A LL ; 

PEACE AND GOOD-WILL AMONG ALL. 

In joy and in sorrow, in victory and in defeat, wherever 
we be and whatever our lot, we will acknowledge Thy 
unity and holiness, and pray and toil for the speedy dawn 
of that day, when Thou shalt be reverenced the whole world 
over, and all mankind shall live in peace and unity.

Min ister : 

It will come to pass, in the fulness of time, that the 
Lord's house will be exalted above all the heights and 
all nations will stream unto it. And many people will say : 
Come ye, and let us go up to the house of God, that He 
may teach us of His ways, and we may walk in His paths ; 
He will judge between the nations, and arbitrate for many 
peoples ; and they will beat their swords into plowshares, 
and their spears into pruning-hooks ; nation will not lift 
up sword against nation, neither will they learn war any 
more.

Merciful Father, hasten the coming of that blessed age 
when peace will dwell in every heart and truth on every 
lip. Speed it, O God, in Thy great mercy, for we are 
deeply conscious that the evil of our way has but delayed 
its coming. O Thou, who art acquainted with all our ways, 
and from whom no secret can be hid, we humblv confess

our frailty before Thee. We have followed too much 
the devices and desires of our heart. In the eager 
pursuit of our own pleasures and profits, we have not 
always considered the rights and needs of others. We 
have been quick to judge others' faults, and too slow to 
judge our own. We do earnestly repent of our misdoings. 
Forgive us, O Lord. Create in us clean hearts. Make 
us to know ourselves. Keep our tongues from evil, and 
our lips from speaking guile. Teach us to love one another 
with pure hearts, to exercise forbearance and forgiveness, 
to recompense no man evil for evil. With our faces set 
heavenward, may we resolutely press on to do Thy will, 
making each new day better than the days that are gone, 
and ready at any moment to greet the summons to Thy 
nearer presence and higher service. Amen.

every sen- ice.] 

RESPONSIVE READINGS. I. 
(7b be read alternately by Minister and Congregation.) 

31 in ister : 

Let thy dealings bring no blush upon thy cheek ; 
Commit no sin in the hope of repentance. 
Congregation : 
Blessed Is he whose conscience has not condemned him, 
And alio has not strayed from the path of the Lord. 
Turn unto the Lord and forsake thy sins ; 
Be mindful of His presence, and mend thy ways. 
Flee from sin as from a serpent; 
For if thou earned near, it will bite thee. 
If thy work be great, great will be thy reward; 
Thy Master is faithful in His payments. 
He who practises justice and mercy 
Edabli*he* the kingdom of Heaven, in this world. 
Unhappy is he who mistakes the branch for the tree ; 
Unhappy he who misjudges the shadow for the substance. 
Life is but a loan to man ; 
Death is the creditor mho will one day claim it. 
Though thou canst not complete thy work, 
Thou art not free from doing all thou canst. 

Thy yesterday is thy past ; thy to-day thy future ; 

Thy to-morrow is a secret. 

The best preacher is the heart ; 

The best teacher is time. 

The best booh is the world; 

The best friend is God.

RESPONSIVE READINGS. II. 

(7b be read alternately by Minister and Congregation.) 

Minister : 

If the thoughts of thy heart be pure, 
Even so will be the works of thy hand. 

Congregation: 

Thou mayest deceive men by outward appearance; 
But remember the Lord looks into the heart. 

Accustom thyself to do good ; 

Before long it will become an easy task. 

Never forget the merits which thou hast not, 

Nor think- too much of the good thou hast done. 

When night falls or day dawns, 

Search well into the nature of thy dealings. 

As God's mercy is great, so is His correction ; 

He judges a man according to his works. 

The Lord has endowed man with reason, 

And left him the choice of free will. 

He has set fire and water before thee : 

Thou art free to choose whichever thou wilt. 

The righteous say little and do much ; 

Precept without example is no precept. 

If wise thou art and rich, 

Ijet thy good deeds display thy wisdom and thy wealth. 

He that gives alms in good health, gives gold ; 

In sickness, silver ; in his last will, copper. 

Be as a father unto the fat her It**, 

And thou shalt be as a son to the Most High.

( To be read alternately by Minister and Congregation. ) 

Minister : 

Winnow not with every wind, 
And walk not in every path. 

Congregation : 
Be steadfast in thy conviction, 
And let thy speech be one and the same. 
Be swift to hear, 

But with deliberation give answer. 
If thou hast insight, answer thy neighbor ; 
But if not, lay thy hand upon thy mouth. 
Sow not upon the furrows of unrighteousness, 
ADd thou shalt not reap them seven-fold. 
Envy not the glory of a sinner, 
For thou knoivest not ivhat ivill be his end. 
Delight not in that in which the ungodly delight ; 
Remember that they go not unpunished. 
He who touches pitch will be defiled ; 
He ivho associates with a proud man will become proud. 
Prove thy soul by thy life ; 
See what is evil for it, and abstain from it. 
Sacrifice thy xnllfor the good of others, 
And thou wilt find others yield to thee. 
Make thyself lovable to man, 
And thou wilt be beloved in the sight of God. 
That which is hateful unto thee, 
That do not unto another.

( To be read alternately by Minister and Congregation. ) 

Minister : 

Do Dot evil and evil will not befall thee. 

Love thy fellow-men, and by them wilt thou be beloved. 

Congregation : 

Turn not life into ceaseless toil; 

S])end it wisely, and aid others to do likewise. 

He who craves for what is not his 

Will in the end lose what he has. 

He is rich who is satisfied with his lot ; 

And he is wise who does much with little. 

Kind words will multiply one's friends ; 

And a pleasant tongue will increase kind greetings. 

Unity of brethren and love of neighbors 

Are blessings of the Lord. 

Be careful to meet men kindly, 

And keep thyself aloof from contention. 

A good man will be surety for his neighbor; 

Bid he that is shameless will fail him. 

Have regard to thy name, 

For that shall profit above treasures of gold. 

The fear of the Lord is wisdom, 

And fidelity and humility are His delight. 

The fear of the Lord keeps from sin ; 

Awe of God brings gladness and life. 

With him who fear eth the Lord it shall be well, 

And he will be honored in life and in death.

RESPONSIVE READINGS. V. 

(To be read alternately by Minister and Congregation.) 

Minister' : 

Before retiring, banish ill will against thy neighbor; 
As thou wouldst have thy sin forgiven, pardon his. 

Congregation : 
Even a long life has but few days, 
But a good name endures for ever. 
In the hour of death, wealth proves no companion ; 
But virtue attends the righteous even beyond the grave. 
Happy the man who is rich in good deeds, 
For he shall he honored in life and in death. 
Be not wise in words, but in deeds ; 
Not learning, but doing, makes the true life. 
Some are old in their youth, 
And others are young in old age. 
Judge a man by his deeds, 
And thou wilt not be led to false judgment. 
Say little and do much, 
For by thy action shall thou be judged. 
Let not thy wisdom exceed thy deeds ; 
Lest like a tree thou have many branches and few roots. 
Hare regard to thy name, 

For that shall be exalted above treasure* of gold. 
The righteous need no epitaphs : 
Their deeds are their monuments. 
Burden not thyself with the cares of to-morrow ; 
Live to-day, and live it well.

RESPONSIVE READINGS. VI. 

( To be read alternately by Minister and Congregation.) 

Minister : 

Contend for the truth unto death, 
And the Lord will establish thy cause. 

Congregation : 

Do not speak against the truth ; 

And when thou lackest knowledge, keep silent. 

Trust not to power wrongfully gotten : 

It will not avail thee in the day of trouble. 

Make not thyself an underling to a foolish man, 

And humble not thyself before the mighty. 

Devise not falsehood against thy brother ; 

Neither do the like against thy friend. 

Utter no falsehood at all, 

For the habit of it comes not to good. 

Say not, I will hide myself from the Lord, 

For who from above will be mindful of me ? 

Truth is the bridge that connects earth and heaven. 

In the crown of virtue truth is the brightest jewel. 

He who strives for truth and speaks it 

Is better than he who gives charity or does penance. 

Purity of body comes by water; purity of mind, by truth 

The lamp of truth is a light to knowledge. 

Falsehood is common, truth is rare ; 

Yet truth endures while falsehood must flee. 

Truth is the signet of the Lord; 

He who has truth in his heart has God for his guide.

RESPONSIVE READINGS. VII. 

(To be read alternately by Minister and Congregation.) 

Minister : 

Deliver the oppressed from the hand of the oppressor, 
And be not faint-hearted when thou judgest. 

Congregation : 
Have no respect of persons when thou judgest, 
And let not fear cause thee to do wrong. 
Refrain not from speaking when thou shouldst speak, 
And hide not thy wisdom as a treasure. 
As birds flock with their kind, 
So do the evil consort with their like. 
A wise ruler will give peace unto his people, 
And the government of a prudent man is well ordered. 
An un instructed master destroys his people, 
But through a God-fearing ruler the land will flourish. 
Pride is hateful before the Lord and man, 
And against both does it commit iniquity. 
Because of wrongs, violence and greed, 
Dominion passes from nation to nation. 
The Lord casts down the thrones of the haughty, 
And puts the meek in their stead. 
He takes the power from the great, and destroys them, 
And makes their memory cease from the earth. 
Oppression and injustice shall be blotted out; 
But true dealing shall endure forever. 
The goods of the unjust shall dry up like a stream, 
And shall die away like thunder in a rain.

Minister : 

Think, O man, of all thy great gifts, 

And make use of them according to their worth. 

Congregation : 

Consider ivhence thou contest and whither thou goest, 

And, thou wilt not easily he led to sin. 

The plant is robed with beauty, the, animal with strength; 

But God has distinguished man above both. 

He filled him with intelligence and insight, 

And showed him good and evil. 

He set His eyes upon his heart, 

That He might show him the greatness of His work. 

Though man is bid dust and ashes, 

Yet is his soul the image of God. 

Man's bones and flesh link him to the animal; 

But his soul unites him with the spirit of the Lord. 

Because mind has been given to man, much is expected ; 

Wrongful use of his blessings is returning ill for good. 

God has revealed unto man what is good, 

And has given him choice between right and wrong. 

Free will and a heart God gave to man, 

That he might consider his ways and keep pure. 

Honor man for what he has ; 

Yet honor him more for the use he makes of it. 

Honor man for what he is ; 

Yet honor him more for what he does.

Minister : 

If thou dost aim to serve the Lord, 
Prepare thyself for tribulation. 

Congregation : 
Set thy heart aright, and he steadfast, 
And despair not in time x>f visitation. 
Cleave unto Him and withdraw not thyself, 
Thou shalt have thy recompense in thy latter days. 
All that comes upon thee accept, 
And be patient in thy humiliation. 
Whatever the Almighty does is for thy best ; 
The balm was created by God before the wound. 
Be resigned under thy sufferings ; 
Praise God for evil as well as good. 
Look at the generations of old, and see : 
Who trusted in the Lord and was made ashamed ? 
Or iv ho abode in His fear, and was forsaken t 
Or who called upon Him, and He overlooked him t 
Better present trial and future joy 
Than a life of ease that ends in sin. 
Riches and strength lift up the heart ; 
But the trust in the Lord is above both. 
Woe unto them that have lost patience ! 
What will they do when the Lord shall visit them ? 
They that fear the Lord will trust in Him ; 
For as is His greatness, so also is His merrcy.

Min Uter : 

At first sin is an indifferent stranger ; 
Later a welcome guest ; at last the master. 

Congregation : 

Better to suffer the derision of man 

Than to be a sinner in the eyes of God. 

Humble thyself before death is nigh ; 

In the days of thy might repent of thy sins. 

Repent ye to-day, 

For to-morrow ye may be summoned. 

Even when the gates of heaven are shut to prayer 

They are wide ajar to the penitent's tear. 

Unto them that repent He grants return, 

And comforts those whose confidence fails. 

With the same measure that we mete, 

It shall be measured to us again. 

He that judges his fellow-men in mercy, 

In mercy will be judged by God. 

Rejoice not when thine enemy falls, 

And let not thy heart be glad when he stumbles. 

Say not, " I will avenge the wrong ; " 

Do thou the right; leave judgment to the Lord. 

When a man has atoned, greet him kindly ; 

Reproach him not, for no one is free from sin. 

Of all things that man can do, 

The noblest is to forgive.

Min iste r : 

Occupy the body and mind, though not to excess ; 
And trust not to thy family inheritance. 

Congregation : 

Work with zeal, not with greed ; 
He who is content with his portion is blessed. 
Be not envious of another's possessions, 
Lest thou be filled with bitterness. 
Covet not what is in the hands of others, 
Led thy day* be wasted in pain and grief. 
He who is too eager to rise above his position 
Will never be free from care. 
If thou cand not attain what thou desirest, 
Seek enjoyment in what thou hast. 
Let not the love of gain be stronger in thy sight 
Than a promise made in public or private. 
Refrain from sharp practice and evasions: 
Thou wilt lose all thou gained thereby. 
If thou desirest but what thou needest, a little will suffice ; 
If more than thou needest, nothing will suffice. 
Woe to him who builds his house upon what is not his: 
Swiftly it will bury him under its ruin. 
Seek not to enjoy what is not thine; 
For in the end thou wilt lose joy in what thou hast. 
Flee fa r from ae<j u iring possessions unjustly ; 
But help others to establisJi their own.

RESPONSIVE READINGS. XII. 

{To be read alternately by Minister and Congregation.) 

Minister : 

Let the poor rejoice in thy joy, 

111- thy plenty share with them thy blessings. 

Congregation : 
At the gates of the wealthy, friends are frequent : 
At the gates of the poor they are seldom seen. 
Cease not doing good to whomever you can ; 
Befriend the deserving, whoever he may be. 
Assist the needy, comfort the mourning, 
Whether they he of thy creed or not. 
Strengthen the weak, and satisfy the hungry : 
Be to them a tower of strength. 
Entertain the stranger, gladden the little one*; 
Let your face shine upon the humble. 
Look upon thy wealth, and see what thou canst spare ; 
Look upon the poor, and see what they need. 
He who gives charity in secret honors thepoor ; 
Better not to give thin cause shame by giving. 
Let thy alms-giving not encourage alms-asking. 
It is better to lend to the poor than to give. 
There is nothing so great as love, 
And nothing so good as acts of loving kindness. 
Charity contains its own reward ; 
According to its love is its recompense. 
Do as thou ivouldst be done by is the root of the law ; 
All other precepts are its branches.

MOURNERS' SERVICE. 25 

[One of (he following six Introduetories to the Kaddish to be read at every 
servii-e. ] 

MOURNERS' SERVICE. I. 

Ye who mourn a recent loss, and ye who commemo- 
rate to-day the anniversary of the loss of some near and 
dear one, listen to the consolation of religion. 

God has given, and God has taken. Your dear departed 
are at rest. 

" They have landed on that other shore, 
Where billows never break nor tempests roar." 

The strokes of death are hard, yet there is healing in their 
stripes. Death frequently lays his hand upon many a 
heart aud heals it for ever. Often, very often, death is not 
a calamity, not a punishment, but a blessing. It is so for 
the dead, and no less so for the living. Our best virtues often 
develop only in the darkness and trials of death. Shallow 
and loose-rooted is the tree that has known only sunshine, 
that has never felt the wrench and shock of the gale. Your 
dear ones have entered the higher sphere, while we still 
struggle on, doing imperfectly the noble and disinterested 
things we are enjoined to do. Enthralled with care, we 
drudge on in this material life, but they have heard the 
call and gone before. God grant that we may be ready 
to follow whenever He beckons for us. 

Rise, ye mourners, and, as ye piously honor the memory 
of your dead, pray with us that virtue and piety may be 
more and more perfectly shown in our lives ; that we may 
feel that we are not altogether of this world ; that while 
our feet press the soil here, our hearts and minds may be in 
the spiritual realms with God ; that when at last all tempta- 
tions are over, all sufferings past, all trials ended, we may 
go to our eternal sleep, taking with us the regrets and the 
blessings of all who knew us or knew of us. Amen. 

{Mourners Rise.) 

KADDISH. 

(Seepage 32.) 



26 THE SERVICE HYMNAL. 

MOURNERS' SERVICE. II. 

Thou, Father of Life and Death, humbly we entreat 
Thee to comfort those who need and seek Thy consolation. 
AVhisper to their sorrowing souls words of peaceful sub- 
mission and of strengthening hope. Give them the assur- 
ance that there is some meaning in their visitation which 
they cannot now comprehend, but which some day may 
prove to them that there is more of blessing in their afflic- 
tion than of sorrow. 

"Lead them to think of the departed rather as living than 
dead, — living in the hearts of their dear ones, in the blessed 
memories they have left behind, in the noble deeds they 
have wrought, in the sweet and happy influences they have 
exercised, which neither death nor time can efface. 

Lead them to look upon the bright side of death. May 
their tears not so blind them as not to see that the departed 
are at rest, that pain can no longer rack them, nor care 
harass them, nor wrong grieve them — that they have passed 
beyond the reach of frown or threat or blow, that they are 
now in Thy loving care and blessed keeping. 

May it please Thee, O Lord, speedily to turn these 
mourners' affliction into blessing. May they recognize in 
their visitation a secret call to higher work, to larger use- 
fulness, to a fuller understanding of the real purposes of 
life, that when, in the fulness of time, their summons 
comes, their departure may be as deeply mourned as now 
they themselves mourn those w r ho have already obeyed Thy 
call. Amen. 

(Jfouriirr.s Rise. ) 

KADDISH. 

( See page 32. ) 



MOURNERS' SERVICE. 27 

MOURNERS' SERVICE. III. 

There are two ways of mourning for the dead. There is 
a mourning of despair that looks upon the grave as the end 
of all, and there is that other mourning, that reads written 
athwart the open grave the word immortality. Religion 
takes from mourning its keenest edge by holdiug out the 
rational hope of life's sunrise elsewhere, after sunset here. 
From within the heart there is wafted to us a whisper, 
faint, yet strong enough to banish every gnawing pang and 
remove every troubling doubt — soft and gentle, yet strong 
enough to make the open grave not a harrowing pit of 
merciless annihilation, but the welcome portal through 
which man passes to a new life, higher and better than this. 

Think of this, all ye sorrowing and heavy-laden, and 
you will behold a light arising from the tomb which 
no darkness can quench and no grief obscure. Our 
imperfections require perfecting. Our wrongs must be 
righted. Suffering innocence must be requited. There are 
innate within us latent capacities which are prophetic of a 
future, but unattainable in our present state. There must 
be a state that shall afford scope for the realization of that 
perfection after which our souls aspire. 

Rise ye, therefore, ye who mourn and ye who weep, as in 
memory of the departed ye recite the Kaddish Prayer. 
May it breathe to you the blessed consolation, that, though 
dead, they still live, somewhere, unknown to us, but known 
to God, from whom all life comes and to whom all life 
goes. Amen. 

(Mourners Rise.) 

KADDISH. 

(See page 32.) 



28 THE SERVICE HYMNAL. 

MOURNERS' SERVICE. IV. 

Every affliction, every bereavement, every disappoint- 
ment may be made to serve the good of all ; and that sim- 
ply by being borne without murmur. The spirit of resig- 
nation sheds upon a human life an almost superhuman 
beauty. No man or woman can brave suffering with 
heroic patience, and not inspire the dullest neighbor with 
reverence and humility. The knowledge that affliction 
may be made to serve others will convert suffering into 
sacrifice, will give a holy meaning to pain, will fill it with 
supreme worth. If we can look upon all our sorrows as 
instruments of final good, as means to develop our reason 
and to unfold our faculties, or as being borne for the good 
of others, then will we find peace and strength in the afflic- 
tion, and the cup of bitterness will turn to sweetness. 
By suffering we shall become purified, and, being puri- 
fied, we shall purify others. To the neglected we will be 
a friend ; to those in moral danger, a guard ; to the weak 
we will bring encouragement ; to the erring, self-respect ; to 
the ignorant, knowledge; to the sorrowing, an inward joy; 
and unto ourselves, contentment and hope. 

May such a blessed resignation be yours, ye mourners. 
May your afflictions become unto you instruments for good. 
May light arise from that which now seems dark. For the 
one heart, which you can no more cheer, there are thou- 
sands of living sufferers, longing for such cheer. May you 
weave into your Kaddish Prayer the noble resolution to 
answer their longing, and to hear their prayer. Amen. 

(Mourners Rise.) 

KADDISH. 

(Seepage 82.) 



MOURNERS' SERVICE. 29 

MOURNERS' SERVICE. V. 

Life is a discipline, the world a school, and the only way 
to understand it is to learn the true end of our trainiug. 
The child at school, who pores over hard lessons till the 
page is bedewed with tears, may think that parents and 
teacher are cruel, having no better design than to ruin his 
happiness. But, when he stands with his back on his child- 
hood, and his face set toward the world of earnest life, the 
tears he sheds are tears of gratitude that parents and teachers 
kept him to the hard toil of preparation. Even so when on 
the threshold of eternity we shall look back over our lives, 
we shall see why heavy burdens were laid upon our hearts. 

It is not the life of ease that develops the truest char- 
acter or that brings man nearest to God. All the difference 
between bullion and coin is in the smelting. All the 
difference between a wilderness and a garden is wrought 
by weeding and pruning. All the difference between a 
block of marble and a statue is produced by the mallet and 
the chisel. 

The best and truest and most sympathetic men and 
women are those who have suffered and have been 
bereaved. Hearts which rejoice cannot come so near to 
each other as hearts which grieve. Tears mingle more per- 
fectly than smiles. Tears lead to God. Tears knit us 
closer to our fellow-men, light us into the sanctuary of our 
true selves. May ye who are now worshipping in the 
sanctuary of sorrow become so consecrated there, that 
henceforth ye may become a joy and an inspiration to the 
living. Amen. 

{Mourners Rise.) 

KADDISH. 

(Seepage S8.) 



30 THE SERVICE HYMNAL. 

MOURNERS' SERVICE. VI. 

Under the rod of affliction there often is seen a 
fatherly affection. The fiery furnace of tribulation will 
often soften the heart which reason could not touch. There 
are hearts that need the cutting, even as the hard ground 
needs the plough. The best ground, untilled, soonest gives 
forth rank weeds. Like the sheaves, there are men that 
will display the best that is in them only under the flail. 

There is a self-love, a pride, a boastfulness that blinds 
the eye against every suffering of others, and against every 
sin, until its own pain puts a healing balm upon it, and 
makes it suddenly clear-sighted. The vine that is left 
alone, that never feels the pruning-hook, degenerates to 
wildness, and produces no wholesome fruit; whereas the 
most delicious fruit grows there where the vintager with 
his knife of affliction cuts away all that bars the sunlight 
and prevents a healthy growth. We are often furthered 
by our afflictions in attaining virtue. They are as a thorny 
hedge to keep us in our right course, to prevent us from 
wandering into the by-paths of sin. 

Affliction is also educative to those still spared. As the 
wise physician does not only apply medicine for the cure of 
the disease, but also gives preservatives to maintain health, 
so afflictions come not only to the afflicted to purge away 
inward corruption, but also as a warning unto the spared. 

May the sorrows of others exercise a chastening influence 
upon us. May they keep us from too great a trust in 
ourselves. May we remember our dependence on higher 
will and wisdom, and in that remembrance find our light 
and see our duty. Amen. 

(Mourners Rise.) 

KADDISH. 

(See page 32.) 



MEMORIAL PRAYER. 31 

MEMORIAL PRAYER. 

(On the anniversary of the death of a member of the family.) 

O Thou, Comforter of the comfortless, those whom death 
once smote heavily seek Thy presence to-day in commemo- 
ration of their dear departed. Reverently they pour forth 
their gratitude that they have learned to bow submissively 
to Thy decrees. Thou hast poured healing balm into their 
wounds and their souls are comforted. Faith and hope 
have stilled the heart which in the days of its bereavement 
reason could not solace nor friendship soothe. 

There are those who recall to-day the time when they 
were permitted to live in closest bonds of love with a dear 
departed; and there are those who think of a precious dear 
one taken from them at a time when they were still too 
young to realize their loss. These are grateful that, though 
early bereaved, the blessed influence of the departed has 
been their invisible stay and support ; the others find com- 
forting assurance in this anniversary service that, though 
death wrested dear ones from them, though it bereft the 
heart and desolated the home, it could not conquer love 
nor rob affection of its happy memories and blessed hopes. 

Grant them, O God, thy further solace. Remove yet 
every lingering vestige of their great sorrow. May they 
show their true appreciation of the dear departed by follow- 
ing the good example set, the noble lessons taught, the 
solemn injunctions given. 

And may this Memorial Day stimulate in us all such 
worthy conduct in the future that when, in due time, our 
summons comes, we may leave behind a name deserving of 
grateful commemoration by kin and by friend. Amen.

the name of the Lord. 

Man is of few days, and 
full of trouble. He cometh 
forth like a flower, and is cut 
down ; he fleeth as a shadow, 
and continueth not. All are 
of dust, and all turn to dust 
again. There the wicked cease 
from troubling, and there the 
weary are at rest. There the 
fettered are free ; there they 
hear not the voice of the op- 
pressor. The small and the 
great are there. The dust 
alone returns to dust; the 
spirit returns to God, who 
gave it. In the way of right- 
eousness is life, and in the 
pathway thereof there is no 
death. 

May the Lord of the Uni- 
verse grant plenteous peace, 
and a goodly reward, and 
grace and mercy, unto Israel, 
and unto all who have de- 
parted from this life. Amen. 

May He who maintains the 
harmony of the universe 
vouchsafe unto all of us peace 
for evermore. Amen.

CLOSING PRAYER. 

{To be read by Minister and Congregation.) 

God, be graciously pleased to take us under Thy 
Fatherly care. Implant within our hearts a grateful sense 
of Thy goodness, and an abiding faith in the wisdom 
of Thy decrees. Dispose us to dedicate our souls and 
minds and hearts to Thee in a righteous and useful life. 
Keep us temperate in our desires, faithful in our labors, and 
content with our rewards. Incline us to be just in all our 
dealings, and ready to do good to all. Make our thoughts, our 
words, our deeds testimonies that Thou alone rulest within 
us, and that the peace and well-being of our fellowmen lie 
nearest to our hearts. May the words of our lips and the 
meditations of our hearts be acceptable in Thy sight, O 
Thou, to whom every soul is bare and every heart is open. 
Amen.

Before, behind, I meet Thine eye, 

And feel Thy heavy hand; 
Such knowledge is for me too high 

To reach or understand; 
What of Thy wonders can I know? 

What of Thy purpose see? 
Where from Thy Spirit shall I go? 

Where from Thy presence flee? 

If I ascend to heaven on high, 

Or make my bed below, 
Or take the morning's wings and fly 

O'er oceans ebb and flow, 
Or seek from Thee a hiding-place 

Amid the gloom of night 

Alike to Thee are time and space, 

The darkness and the light.

The restless sea, with haughty roar, 
Calms each wild wave and billows rude, 

Retreats submissive from the shore, 
And swells the chorus, "God is good:' 

The countless hosts of twinkling stars 
That sing His praise with light renewed; 

The rising sun each day declares, 
In rays of glory, "God is good." 

The moon, that walks in brightness, says

With power to speak his Maker's praise, 
Should still repeat that God is good.

Thou leav'st Thy print in other works of Thine, 
But Thy whole image Thou in man hast writ; 

There cannot be a creature more divine 
Except, like Thee, it should be infinite. 

Nor hath He giv'n these blessings for a day, 
Nor made them on the body's life depend; 

The soul, though made in time, survives for aye,

To light it through the future's deeper gloom. 

It is the hidden principle of soul, 

Which will not sleep amid a noon of light, 
Which ponders still upon a doubtful scroll, 

And spurns the lessons that are read at sight- 

Which, more than present waters, loves to hear 
The music of an unseen fountain play, 

And, better than the trumpet that is near, 
The echo of a trumpet far away.

THE NEW YEAR. 69 



Ah! who of us, if self-reviewed, 

Can boast unfailing rectitude? 

Who can declare his wayward will 

More prone to righteous deeds than ill? 

Or, in his retrospect of life, 

No traces find of passion's strife? 



Withfirm resolve your bosoms nerve 
The God of right alone to serve,- 
Speech, thought, and act to regulate 
By what His perfect laws dictate; 
Nor from His holy precepts stray, 
By worldly idols lured away. 



Peace to the House of Israel! 
May joy within it ever dwell! 
May sorrow on the opening year, 
Forgetting its accustomed tear, 
With smiles again fond kindred meet, 
With hopes revised the festal greet!

THE NEW YEJR . 7 i 

Should care be mine, or loss of health, 

Or poverty, or loss of friends, 

Since God the Lord of All is mine, 

My soul shall never fear or pint; 

For happiness comes not of wealth, 

Nor joy on earthly source depends. 



With Gods forgiveness for the past, 

And with His grace for days in store, 
Though short or long those days may be, 
The future hath no dread for me-, 

He will be with me to the last, 



His love be mine for evermore. 



Come bane or blessing, good or ill, 
All things are under His control; 
The boundless Universe His care, 
I none the less His mercy share, 
And all things serve to work His will 
For the best welfare of my soul. 



So will I start the year with song, 

And bless Gods name from day to day. 
Both when the sky is clear and bright 
And mid the darkness of the night, 
Through all, I will His praise prolong, 
And praising pass from earth away.

The path of penitents: 
He striveth painfully for words 

To tell how he repents. 

God, I tremble when I mark 

How day on day is lost, 
And yet my heart, by passions ruled, 

Still to and fro is tossed. 

Oh, let my penitence to day

Contrite I vow to serve Thee well;

ATONEMENT DAY. 77 

Th' unwearied sun from day to day 
Does his Creators power display; 
And publishes to every land, 
The work of an Almighty hand. 



Soon as the evening shades prevail, 
The moon takes up the wondrous tale; 
And nightly, to the listening earth, 
Repeats the story of her birth. 



Whilst all the stars that round her burn, 
And all the planets in their turn, 
Confirm the tidings as they roll, 
And spread the truth from pole to pole. 



What though in solemn silence,all 
Move round the dark terrestrial ball; 
What though no real voice, or sound 
Amidst their radiant orbs be found: 



In reasons ear they all rejoice, 
Ajid utter forth a glorious voice; 
For ever singing as they shine-. 
The hand that made us is divine'

O Giver of the quickening rain ! 
Ripener of the golden grain ! 
From Thee the cheerful dayspring flows; 
Thy balmy evening brings repose. 



Thy frosts arrest, Thy tempests chase 
The plagues that waste our helpless race; 
Thy softer breath, o'er land and deep, 
Wakes Nature from her winter sleep. 



Yet deem we not in this alone 
Thy bounty and Thy love are shown, 
For we have learned with higher praise 
And holier names to speak Thy ways. 



In woe's dark hour our kindest stay, 
Sole trust when life shall pass away, 
Teacher of hopes that light the gloom 
Of death and consecrate the tomb. 



Patient with headstrong guilt to bear, 
Slow to avenge and kind to spare, 
Listening to prayer, and reconciled 
Full soon to Thy repentant child.

What arm arrest the growing day, 

Or quench the solar star ? 

What arm shall dare, tho' stout and strong, 

Restore the ancient wrong?

And freedom's morning bar? 

The hour of triumph comes apace, 

The fated, promised hour, 
When earth upon a ransom'd race 
Her bounteous gifts shall shower.

When hope would bid us rest secure 

In better life beyond. 
Nor love, nor shame, nor grief, nor sin 

His promise may gainsay; 
The voice divine hath spoke within, 

And God cannot betrav. 



Hope leads the child to plant the flower, 

The man to sow the seed, 
Nor leaves fulfilment to the hour, 

But prompts again to deed; 
And ere upon the old man's dust 

The grass is seen to wave, 
We look through falling tears to trust 

Hope's sunshine in the grave.

When spring doth wake the song of mirth, 
When summer warms the fruitful earth, 
Men winter sweeps the naked plain, 
When autumn yields its ripen'd grain, 

We ever sing 

To Thee, our King; 
Through all their changes Thou dost reign. 



But chiefly when Thy bounteous hand 
New plenty scatters o'er the land, 
When sounds of music fill the air 
As homeward men earth's treasures bear, 

We too will raise 

Our hymn of praise, 
For we Thy common bounties share. 



Lord of the harvest, all is Thine — 
The rains that fall, the suns that shine 
The seed once hidden in the ground, 
The skill that makes our fruits abound. 

New every year 

Thy gifts appear ; 
New praises from our lips shall sound.

Scatter blessings in the pathway — 

Gentle words and cheering smiles; 
Better they than gold and silver, 

With their strife creating wiles. 
As the pleasant sunshine falleth 

Ever on the grateful earth, 
So let sympathy and kindness 

Gladden well the darkened hearth. 



Hearts there are oppressed and weary: 

Drop the tears of sympathy; 
Whisper words of hope and comfort; 

Give, and thy reward shall be 
Joy unto thy soul returning 

From this perfect fountain-head; 
Freely as thou freely givest 

Shall the grateful light be shed.

More precious are her bright rewards 
Than gems or stores of gold. 

Her right hand offers to the just 

Immortal, happy days;

And heavenly crowns displays.

So her rewards increase; 

Her ways are ways of pleasantness,

Though we are but two or three, 
Sure of triumph we should be; 
We our promised land shall see, 

Though the way seems long; 
Every fearless word we speak 
Makes sin's stronghold bend and creak- 
Tyranny is always weak, 

Truth is always strong.

Who have sanctified the past, 
Bearing witness to the last.

From the Greek's and Syrian's scorn 

Gives us hope and heart.

Thee the Mac-ca-bee was fired, The des - pot foes to crush. 




Amid the ruins of their land, 

In Salenis sad decline, 
Stood forth a brave but scanty band 

To dttttle for their Shrine. 
In bitterness of soul they wept, 

Without the temple walls, 
For weeds around its court had crept, 

And foes camped in its halls. 

Not long to vain regrets they yield, 

But for their cherished fame, 
Nerved by true faith, they take the field, 

And victory obtain. 
But whose the power, whose the hand, 

Which thus to triumph led 
That slender but heroic band 

From which blasphemers fled? 



'Twas Thine, everlasting King 

And universal Lord! 
Whose wonder still Thy servants sing, 

And ever shall record. 
And thus shall Mercy's hand delight 

To cleanse the blemished heart 
Rekindle heaven's waning light, 

And truth and peace impart.

Deep in unfathomable mines 

Of never-failing skill, 
He treasures up His bright designs, 

And works His sovereign will. 

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, 
But trust Him for His grace-. 

Behind a frowning providence 
He hides a smiling face. 

His purposes will ripen fast, 

Unfolding every hour : 
The bud may have a bitter taste, 

But sweet will be the flower. 

Blind unbelief is sure to err, 
And scan His work in vain: 

God is His own interpreter, 
And He will make it plain.

When day, with farewell beam, delays 

Among the opening clouds of even, 
And we can almost think we gaze 

Through golden vistas into heaven, 
Those hues, that make the suns decline 
So soft, so radiant, Lord! are Thine. 



When night, with wings of starry gloom, 
Oershadows all the earth and skies, 

Like some dark, beauteous bird, whose plume 
Is sparkling with unnumbered eyes, 

That sacred gloom, those fires divine, 

So grand, so countless, Lord! are Thine. 



When youthful spring around us breathes, 

Thy spirit warms her fragrant sigh; 
And every flower the summer wreathes 

Is born beneath that kindling eye. 
Where'er we turn Thy glories shine, 
And all things fair and bright are Thine.

The friends, who in our sunshine live, 
When winter comes are flown; 

And he who has but tears to give 
Must weep those tears alone. 

When joy no longer soothes or cheers, 
And even the hope that threw 

A moment's sparkle o'er our tears 
Is dimmed and vanished too! 

Oh! who would bear life's stormy doom, 

Did not Thy Wing of Love 
Come, brightly wafting through the gloom, 

Our Peace branch from above ? 

Then sorrow, touched by Thee, grows bright 
With more than raptures ray; 

As darkness shows us worlds of light 
We never saw by day. 



GEXERAL. 117 



THE WORTH OF SUFFERING 



Oh, deem not that earth's crowning bliss 

Is found in joy alone; 
For sorrow, bitter though it be, 

Hath blessings all its own. 



As blossoms smitten by the rain 

Their sweetest odors yield; 
As where thy plough has deepest struck. 

Rich harvests crown the field. 



So to the hopes, by sorrow crushed, 
A nobler faifh succeeds; 

And life, by trials furrowed, bears 
The fruit of loving deeds.

His mercy underlies. 



And if my heart and flesh are weak 
To bear an untried pain, 

The bruised reed He will not break, 
But strengthen and sustain. 



No offering of my own I have, 
Nor works my faith to prove; 

I can but give the gifts He gave, 
And plead His love for love. 



I know" not where His islands lift 
Their fronded palms in air; 

I only know I cannot drift 
Beyond His love and care. 



And Thou, Lord, by whom are seen 
Thy creatures as they be, 

Forgive me if too close I lean 
My human heart on Thee.

THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS. 



Scorn not the slightest word or deed, 
Nor deem it void of power; 

There's fruit in each wind wafted seed 
That waits its natal hour. 



A whispered word may touch the heart 

And call it back to life; 
A look of love bid sin depart 

And still unholy strife. 



No act falls fruitless, none can tell 
How vast its power may be; 

Nor what result infolded dwell 
Within it silently. 



Work on, despair not, bring thy mite, 
Nor care how small it be; 

God is with all that serve the right, 
The holy, true, and free.

GOOD SHALL FALL AT LAST TO ALL 



Oh, yet we trust that, somehow, good 
Will "be the final goal of all, 
To pangs of nature, sins of will, 

Defects of doubt, and taints of blood. 



That nothing walks with aimless feet; 
That not one life shall be destroyed, 
Or cast as rubbish to the void, 

When God hath made the pile complete. 



That not a worm is cloven in vain; 
That not a moth with vain desire 
Is shrivelled in a fruitless fire, 

Or but subserves another's gain. 



Behold! we knew not anything; 

I can but trust that good shall fall, 
At last, far off, at last, to all, 

And every winter change to spring.

Praise the Lord of Heaven, praise Him in the height, 
Praise Him, all ye angels, praise Him, stars and light; 
Praise Him, skies and waters, which above the skies, 
When His word commanded, 'stahlished did arise. 



Praise the Lord, ye fountains of the deeps and seas, 
Rocks, and hills, and mountains, cedars and all trees; 
Praise Him, clouds and vapors, snow, and hail, and fire, 
Stormy wind, fulfilling only His desire. 



Praise Him, fowls and cattle, princes and all kings , 
Praise Him, men and maidens, all created things, 
For the Name of God is excellent alone; 
Over earth His footstool, over heaven His throne.

TRUE OBJECT OF PRAISE 



"Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us," 

The praise or honor, power or glory be ! 

Our naked spirit bows in shame and dust, 
And empty all our nothingness to Thee. 



"Not unto us!" How trifling all our might, 

Our toils or talents, gifts or growth or grace; 

Nothing, and less than nothing, in Thy sight, 

Our works, ourselves! before Thy glorious face. 



"Not unto us," the grass, the flowers, the trees 

Breathe in low whispers when the sunshine rains; 

"Not unto us," the beasts, the birds, the breeze 
Responsive murmur o'er the hills and plains. 



"Not unto us" Lord of lords supreme, 

Whate'er we work, Thou workest; Thine the praise; 
O wake us, cleanse us, light us with Thy beam, 

And work, in us, through us to endless days.

From our first day of life, 

When peacefully we rested 
Within our mother's arms, 

Untroubled unmolested, 
Thy love did bear us up 

Thy mercy never failed 
When we were weak Thy strength 

To make us strong availed. 

O grant, Lord, that our hearts 

In joy may ever treasure 
That peace which Thou dost grant 

To men in boundless measure. 
And, Lord, our hands confirm 

To work for all mens peace, 
Our God whose, love is sure, 

Whose mercies never cease

The Lord, ye know, is God indeed, 
Without our aid He did us make: 

We are His flock, He doth us feed, 
And for His sheep He doth us take. 

O enter then His gates with praise, 
Approach with joy His courts unto: 

Praise, laud, and bless His name always, 
For it is seemly so to do. 



For why? the Lord our God is good, 
His mercy is forever sure: 

His truth at all times firmly stood, 
And shall from age to age endure.
